2005 Chevrolet ColoradoWawdallas - Canton, GA01/30/2007
I had this truck for about a year and a half and I have to say I was pretty pleased as I am not a big fan of Chevy. I thought it had pretty good pick up and power for the I-5 engine. I kick myself for not getting the Crew as I need the space for my little one as it was ok for a little while but she grew and the truck needed to. Stiff seating and ride but wa ok nothing that I would complain about, I like the stereo RDS but would have been nice to have that aux port or Sirius Radio install. Loved the oversized Z71 packaged tires and the look it gave. I got around 19-20 mpg and I think that is pretty good for the engine and the 220hp so I was pleased. Would recommend highly.
2006 Chevrolet ColoradoJimbo - Virginia12/02/2008
Purchased new, the 2006 Colorado Crew Cab, Black, Z71 4x4. Assembled in Shreveport, LA. Great lines and finish (GM almost always scores on sheetmetal). Everything about it is pretty. No quality problems on mine at all. Low price left money for nerf bars, tonneau cover and bed carpet. Quiet and comfortable for a small truck, and much less than the closest competitors, which are the Ford Explorer Sport Track and Nissan Frontier, and much less than a Tacoma. I-5 engine gets better mileage than a V6.

Chevrolet Colorado Overview
The Chevrolet Colorado is considered a midsize truck that is definitely larger than buyers may expect. Accordingly, it offers reasonable amounts of towing capability without the bulk or cost of a full-sized truck. Additionally, it excels off-road like the rest of the competitive compact truck segment.
Chevrolet Colorado History
The Chevrolet Colorado was introduced in 2004 as is one of the larger compact pickup trucks on the market. This vehicle, notably, saw an additional V8 option in 2009. Understandably, this model offered the best performance and achieved the best towing capacity.
How It Drives
Interestingly, the fuel economy is fairly commendable for a compact truck, making it fit for towing cargo over long distances or during daily use. Though the earlier iterations of the Chevy Colorado may be a bit weak, the vehicle's performance has really been improved thanks to more powerful engine options.
Used Chevrolet Colorado Value
The Chevrolet Colorado is Chevy's entry into the highly competitive compact truck segment. However, the Colorado is large enough to be a midsize truck more than truly compact. Older versions of the Chevy Colorado could be worth a look for a basic truck, but they are notably weaker than more recent vehicles.
Chevrolet Colorado Standard Features
The recent Chevrolet Colorado is offered with a choice of four-cylinder as the baseline, and V6 and V8 engines as possible upgrades. Additionally, 2016 models have 2.8L turbodiesel four-cylinder engines available to better balance between fuel efficiency and performance. Rear-wheel drive is standard with four-wheel drive as a notable option. It has six-speed manual transmission and six-speed automatic transmission based on preference.
